I don't blame you for worrying, but try not to worry too much. I definitely wouldn't change my decision to have had either of my girls, even with the chance that they may develop UC. Haven't heard of that type of recovery center, but I'm still pretty newly diagnosed. That's an interesting concept, but a long time to be away from home. Although, it's probably a better setting than a hospital. I did not gain weight on the pred. - actually lost because my flare was so bad. I did get the moonface, but that was after being on really high IV doses of steroids in the hospital, and on high doses of pred. for a long time. I'm on pred. again now (started at 60mg, now down to 20mg), and have had no side effects this time around.
